sa 400 million na icome sa DIA, tsamba ra makakuha sila og 40% share sa national govt.

I dont know how true this is but accordingly, management allowed planting of corn in the vicinity of DIA.This sounds very stupid..

Editorial - Airport, a worsening problem

EDGE
WEDNESDAY, 07 MARCH 2012 00:53

THE Davao International Airport is a problem that is worsening by the day and Dabawenyos seem helpless to do something about it.

The DIA opened its doors to the traveling public in December 2003, after taking several years to finish at the bloated cost of more than P5 billion, approximately double its original cost of only P2.7 billion.

From the outside, the brand new airport appeared sleek and posh but inside it had a lot of defects that prompted the House of Representatives to conduct an investigation shortly after its opening.

Many of the multi-million navigational instruments whose cost was charged against the DIA’s construction, including luxury vehicles which were used by some higher government officials in Manila instead of being brought here for use of the airport management.

Many of the defects and anomalous practices in the DIA were exposed by some concerned insiders but, save for the seemingly sham House investigation, nothing was done about the anomalies. Instead of being appreciated, one whistleblower was reassigned to Jolo, forcing the poor chap to leave the country and family and seek employment in an Arab country.

Today, the airport continues to deteriorate with time without any solution in sight. The problems are exacerbated by bad practices of the local management.

Consider the following:

--only one of its three original firetrucks is still operational :

--only one of the original four baggage x-ray machines remain functional:

-- the terminal’s roof leaks whenever it rains;

--the restrooms reek with foul odor;

-- during peak hours, many passengers have to squat on the floor or stand because the pre-departure area lacks space and benches;

--the airport tower is infested with termites;

--dogs are allowed to encroach into the runway;

--cats are allowed to sneak into the terminal;

--planting of corn is allowed in one space of the airport attracting birds that pose a risk to planes taking off or about to land.


All these and more compromise the comfort and safety of airport clientele.

Political and business leaders of the region who have lodged a formal complaint with the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines have failed to goad the CAAP authorities to correct all that is wrong with the DIA.

We suggest that our leaders through the Regional Development Council Region11 address their appeal to Transportation Secretary Mar Roxas. Surely he is in a position to do something about the problem with the airport.

Incoming first time visitors to our city will have their first impression of the city upon their landing, and last impression upon leaving.

Nakakahiya!

It's been worked out.The local council might endorse a resolution to the Congress or even the capable congressman nograles can file a resolution.DIA is one of the top 3 income generating airports, so there's no reason why they cannot make an authority out of DIA.

The congressmen have been repeatedly trying before...... I do remember that in Ramos' time, The bill actually reached the second reading..but again. In government, if you add more plantilla or items to its already burdened payroll, the Congress usually would not want that...kaya ayun.. The bill did not reach the third reading. The proponent was usually Hon. Manuel Garcia of the second District.

terminal 1 might be the bigger domestic wing... yung main terminal. the smaller one at the viewer's left is actually the international wing of the old Davao international Airport.
